Starting with 3DMark 11, you can see some strong performance gains. The better gains are, of course, seen in the Extreme preset where the setup is under more pressure. On a whole, though, you can see we're really a mile ahead of all the other setups here.

 

 

3DMark Fire Strike

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1

Looking above at Fire Strike, you can see the Standard preset sees some excellent performance. Moving to the Extreme one, though, we found ourselves unable to complete a run. Whenever we got to the combined test, Fire Strike would crash. Here's hoping this issue is fixed sooner rather than later.
